Description

Look, you know the drill by now. Once a year we get together for the lang cat's DEADx talks, and do our level best to sort the problems of our industry. In two hours. With drinks.

This year, we're back once again at the Crypt on the Green in fashionable Clerkenwell. And whereas in previous years we've looked at the demise and rebirth of the platform sector, this time we're turning our gimlet gaze to asset management and its wily ways.

In keeping with our cryptic venue, our 2017 morbid tales concern the Ghosts of Asset Management. We'll be visited by the Ghosts of Asset Management Past, Present and Yet To Come, quite possibly in that order, but you can never tell.

We have no shortage of questions to consider. In a sector which has lived high on the hog for a long time, how sustainable are those #36% profit margins? Does asset management stand on its own two feet in the retail market or does it need a platformy stick to lean on? Will transparency and impact investing accelerate as beta liberal snowflake millenials start to pay off their iPhones and earn some actual money? Whither vertical integration and pricey multi-asset funds in a post-PMS and AMMS world? Just where are the customers' yachts? What the hell is MiFID II about? And more, or maybe less.

Then we'll have a drink.

Our speakers all know their cabbages, and asset management and retail distribution too, in case brassica aren't any use to you. We're still finalising the agenda, but it'll be our usual heady mix of lang cats, troublemakers, industry legends-in-their-own-lunchtimes and proper experts.

This event - like every DEADx - will be free, and no funny business. No-one pays to speak; we ask the people we want to hear from, and hope you like them.

Your job? Turn up in the afternoon, have a beer or whatnot, listen to some properly interesting content from people with nothing to sell, get cross or inspired, and then hang around to have more beers or whatnots and do what other conferences call 'networking' and we call 'talking to people'. That bit at the end is where you try to get a new job if you want one. We won't be held responsible.

We only have about 125 seats, so get booking in.
